A Study In Shifters
Majanka Verstraete
(The Adventures of Marisol Holmes, #1)
Publication date: June 26th 2018
Genres: Paranormal, Young Adult

Seventeen-year-old Marisol Holmes may be the great-great-great granddaughter of Sherlock Holmes, but it’s hard to live up to the family name when only one mistake can spell your downfall. After trusting the wrong guy in a case gone totally wrong, Marisol convinces the Conclave, an underground organization of detectives solving supernatural cases, to give her a last chance to prove her worth, and maybe even heal her broken heart

After all, as a half-blood jaguar shifter, Marisol is uniquely qualified to solve this murder—and every scrap of evidence points toward the culprit being a fellow jaguar shifter. But is one of her own people involved, or is this all a ploy to kick Marisol’s mother off the shifter throne?

Then Marisol discovers her best friend, Roan, is missing, and maybe the killer’s next target. The stakes just got higher than political intrigue. Just when things couldn’t get worse, Marisol’s ex-boyfriend-turned-nemesis, Mannix, starts leaving sinister clues for her. Marisol fears this case might be far more personal than she could’ve imagined.

It’s time for Marisol to prove her worth, or her people could fall into chaos while her best friend loses his life.

My Review:

Marisol Holmes like her great-great-great grandfather Sherlock Holmes likes to solve crimes and is or was a member of the Conclave, an underground organization of detectives solving supernatural cases. After a case that goes horribly wrong Marisol is no longer a member of the Conclave but she plans to remedy that real soon.

In order to be reinstated as a member of the Conclave Marisol is sent on test case to prove to them if she is capable to be a detective. A young shifter girl turns up dead at the prestigious Waynard Academy boarding school in England so Marisol is sent by the Conclave to solve the murder.

Later Marisol finds out that her best friend Roan is missing and now she must find him before it is too late if it is not already. Was Roan kidnapped? If so who took him and why? Does Roan being missing have anything to with the any of the girls that were murder?
A Study in Shifters is filled with mystery around every corner and will keep you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out whodunit. I tried all through the book to figure out who was doing the killing and thought I had it figured out to but boy was I surprised when I finally found out. Majanka Verstraete knows how to tell a story and keep you guessing the whole way through. I loved it. I can’t wait to see what Marisol and her friends have in store for un in the next book.
